Penguin Games

This card is made for my mum. I know purple isn't a traditional festive colour but it is my mum's favourite colour. I have stamped 'Penguin Games' in Stazon and coloured using watercolour pencils and added ultrafine glitter to their hats. Mounted on to Gumdrop card and added to base. The layout for the base has been CASEd from this gorgeous card by Kimmie over at Kraftin' Kimmie's Korner. the front of the card has been cut out to leave just the bottom half to which a layer of Fairy Dust CS has been embossed using the my snowflakes embossing folder and mounted to more Gumdrop CS. Message oval has been swiped with ink around the edges and added to the front with 3D foam. The inside has been made by layering up gorgeous snowflake paper on to Gumdrop card with organza ribbon wrapped around. 3 small gem stones have been added to the right and a glittery poinsettia added to the left with another gem stone.
